Practically Unsinkable

12 April 2011

Last July, I introduced to you all the book I was writing, then titled Peril on the Sea. Many months have passed since then, and much has changed over the course of those months. My book's title changed from Peril on the Sea to Violets Are Blue. And you ladies have all been such wonderful support. You have prayed for me when I most needed your prayers, and you have cheered me on in times of great joy. It has been a difficult time, but an altogether wonderful experience. 

There are still a few things to be done, and of course the road to publication will not be an easy one, but still: For the most part, the real work is done. And now it's time to celebrate. 

Which is why I am introducing to you now an event that has been forming in my mind (and my sister's) ever since January. An event that will last a whole year. 

This event is called Unsinkable

On April 14th, 2012, it will be the 100 year anniversary since the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic. Besides celebrating the progress my book has made and hopeful publication, this event will also commemorate the many souls who died on that terrible night. Hosted by Bree and myself, Unsinkable will consist of monthly giveaways relating to the Titanic or a main theme from my book (i.e. letter writing, friendship), excerpts from VAB, 100 random facts about the Titanic to be posted throughout the course of the year on the Unsinkable blog (the blog design is not installed yet, and so the Unsinkable blog is still private. It will hopefully be up by tomorrow, and then I will post the link), and guest posts by different ladies on topics relating to the Edwardian era. 

It would be dishonest if I did not say how VERY excited I am about this event. We've planned and plotted for hours, and I'm sure all of you ladies will be very much excited when you see what we have in store for the next year. 

The first giveaway will be up on the 14th. Care to join me? Then hop on board! There are no icebergs in sight. :)
